Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure involves using a device to create tiny punctures in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process. This, in turn, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for youthful-looking skin. CIT can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage.
At Bare Body Laser, our experienced team offers CIT appointments that are tailored to each individual’s needs. We understand that every patient has different goals for their treatment, and we will work with you to ensure that you get the best possible results. During your appointment, one of our certified technicians will cleanse your skin and then apply a topical anesthetic. Once your skin is numbed, the technician will use the CIT device to create hundreds of tiny punctures in the surface of your skin. The entire procedure takes about an hour to complete, and most patients report little to no discomfort during treatment. After the procedure, your skin may appear red and swollen, but this should resolve within a few days. You may also experience some minor bruising or crusting, but these side effects will also subside in time.
